From the "Life Is Too Short" Files

New TV shows this season that I've already given up on: Cartoon Network's rebooted Thundercats and MTV's Death Valley. Both became very tedious very quickly.

New TV shows I think I'm about to give up on: FOX's Terra Nova and CBS' Person of Interest. Both started off with interesting premises and a hint of promise, but so far neither has lived up to it or done anything at all compelling with it. While Terra Nova, surely the stupider of the two shows, continues at least to substitute cool dinosaurs for me to look at in place of story lines I care about, Person of Interest, which ought to be smart, edge-of-your-seat viewing, has become like watching paint dry.
